Carry out more participative strategic reflections

When it applies

When significant reflections are undertaken, like those necessary to define the mission/vision, purpose, values, desired behaviour, development of a strategy or transformation plan. Also, for strategic refocusing of the whole or a part of the activity. Can be recurring or punctual.

Problem it solves

Strategic reflections continue to be done in a very centralized way by the departments of strategy and/or innovation.

  • External help from consultants provides an additional point of view, but does not change the fact that they are “top-down”

  • They reflect a limited understanding of reality and opportunities, far removed from the capabilities and will of those in the organization

As there are no recipes or easy and unique solutions, these reflections end up being theoretical documents.

Added value by delibera

It allows you to make profound strategic reflections involving in an organised way a very relevant number of people (Up to 500-1000-5000), in a short period of time (2 to 4 months), opening between 20 and 30 intelligent conversations.

  • Optimizing the deliberation process, eliminating time and geographic constraints for participation

  • Identifying changemakers, measuring and recognizing collaboration

  • Optimizes the efficiency and scope of the process of collecting information and ideas

  • Structures and segments the debate around action options

Maximise the chances of a successful transformation, in a process that is already very innovative in itself.
